This fest is all about liberation, in every sense of the word. Retaining the official distinction as NYC’s coolest old-school dance party extravaganza, The Freedom Party is the jubilant brainchild of merrymaking visionaries Herbert Holler, DJ Cosi and Marc Smooth. They got together in 2003 to create a space for people of all walks of life and ideologies to meet and harmoniously dance with euphoric abandon. Freedom keeps rockin’ strong in New York.
